The MPL PH Season 7 is all set for the grand kick-off. All the participating teams are getting gearing up for one of the biggest Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League in the Philippines, starting on March 19, 2021. Eight invited esports teams and two teams from the qualifiers will compete for the crown of MPL champions and the lion’s share of the $120,000 USD prize pool. The stakes are high, and the teams are willing to go the distance to prove they deserve the MPL PH Season 7 championship. With that in mind, here are five reasons to watch and follow the upcoming MPL PH Season 7.

How will the two underdogs fare against the big names of MPL PH?

They may be underdogs, but they are a force to be reckoned with.

Some fans might say these teams have no chance of winning the MPL Ph Season 7, but there is more to them than just underdogs. 

Laus Playbook Esports is filled with experienced veterans like Yakou, a former member of Cignal Ultra, the team that took down the colossal Bren Esport and claimed the MPL PH Season 2 Champion title. So they still have the tenacity to go toe-to-toe with the best that the MPL PH Season 7 has to offer.

On the other hand, Work Auster Force went undefeated through the MPL PH Season 7 Main Qualifier. They may not have the MPL PH experience, but they are certainly a force to be reckoned with.  

It will be interesting to see how they fare in the larger scheme of things.

Will Aura PH make their way on top once again? 

Bennyqt and Hadess may be the players that Aura PH needs to get back on top.

Last season was pretty disappointing for the two-time MPL champions as they failed to secure a slot in the playoffs. Two of their core members, KielVJ and Renzio left the team after the season. To replace them, Aura PH has brought in Lord Hadess and Bennyqt, successful players with a history of great performances in previous seasons of MPL PH.

Will the two new members of Aura PH be able to restore the team to its former glory and challenge for the crown this season?

How well will Nexplay Esports’ new lineup synergize?

When the announcement that Nexplay Esports made it into the invited teams, fans were ecstatic. Nexplay Esports, with Akosi Dogie as their head coach, had made drastic changes to their roster, trading Jimnest, MB, and Chester for Exort, LanCey, and Jeymz. With only Renejay and H2wo keeping their places on the roster, Nexplay Esports field a completely different team for this MPL PH Season 7.

Synergy and gelling together are always going to be under the scanner whenever a team makes such drastic shuffles. So it will be intriguing to see the effect of these changes. Will it be enough to help Nexplay Esports improve their ranking from the previous year? We’ll have to find out when the tournament kicks off. 

Will Z4pnu finally get his very first MPL championship title?

Execration is ready for the upcoming MPL PH Season 7.

Z4pnu is one of the veteran esports pros in the Filipino Mobile Legends esports scene. Despite his successes in various tournaments, one thing has eluded him over the years. Z4pnu is yet to taste success at the MPL PH. He does not have his own MPL Championship title. This has been a running joke in the community for quite some time now. 

MPL PH Season 7 presents another season and another chance for Execration to pull off a win and finally end Z4pnu’s thirst for the MPL PH title. Can they deliver on the big stage?

Will Bren Esports Defend the MPL Champion Title?

Fans would be quick to say that Bren is invincible. The team has been all-conquering in the last few months, triumphing in the MPL PH Season 6 and the M2 World Championship, and was crowned as the world’s best ML team.

However, a lot of things have changed since the M2 World Championship took place. Their contenders have refreshed their lineups, bringing in solid reinforcements to bolster their team and their chances at taking down the Filipino giants. 

Bren Esports has chosen to stick with their proven lineup. The pressure is certainly high for the defending champions as they aim to replicate their predecessors Aura PH, by winning two championships in a row.

Will they be able to hold out their MPL Champion title? Or will they get taken down by one of their renewed challengers, perhaps by one of the underdogs, in the MPL PH Season 7?
